Librarians celebrate record by getting mohawks

Posted: Updated:

VISTA (CBS 8) - The employees at the Vista Library certainly don't fit the stereotype of a typical librarian. Instead of hair ties and glasses, they're sporting colorful mohawks.

On Friday, five library staffers and the library director got their hair cut into mohawks to celebrate one million checkouts within a year -- a new checkout record.

Library director Jose Aponte says he was happy to participate in Friday's "punky" challenge.

"We've got terrific people here, terrific community, Vista is special, this is a special library. And hey, I look a little different, but my wife is still here," Aponte said.

Library staff members came up with the unusual challenge.
